    While you are upgrading your phone will not be useable. What device do you have and who is your carrier so I can tell you the newest OS avalible for you.

    Docs to go is standerd on 4.5 and as far as the splash screen it will remain whatever it is now even after the upgrade. Did I get at least part of this right. I think this is what you were looking for.
    If you want to upgrade there is a lot of help here and we can get you going.

    well im actually in jamaica so i dont really have a carrier per-say lol but ive seen in the thread for latest o.s's that .124 is out. i know that when your upgrading its not useable but i mean if the light goes what happens to the phone. and thanks for the splash screen info. So since docs to go is standard that means i will get the excel as well?? i have a 8120 and the current o.s is 4.5.0.38. I think im behind time with the o.s lol. im jus scared of doing it even though a did it for a friend. lol

    The upgrades usually go flawless... Docs to go will include word, excel and powerpoint...

    Carrier screen stays the same, as you already know... (Unless you do a debrand)...

    Just up it and enjoy... And remember to delete the vendor.xml...

    You can get the 8120 here there are also links for How to in the OP. All should go fine for you. If you decide to do it however I would suggest DM 4.6 and not 4.7. If you decide to do it and have any issues someone will be around to help you out.

    When you say the light goes, do you mean the electricity goes out or do you mean the LED stops flashing?

    If it bricks while upgrading it would not be usable until you were able to get the OS installed. I would wipe it before the upgrade but you don't have too. DM 7 isn't as stable as 4.6 and has been a big pain for a lot of users.

    If that does happen, you can mostly restart the process by doing a wipe and starting the OS process over again...

    4.7 has a few stability issues and 4.6 is reliable on that front, that's why its preferred...

    Debranding is when you remove the vendor specific information from your device. It then boots up with a RIM screen... Also opens up advanced engineering options... Its pretty cool...
